Identity Thief () - IMDb
There are moments in the new comedy Identity Thief that show you exactly just how brilliant this film could have been. Instead of an entertaining and breezy comedy, Identity Thief could have been, and probably should have been, one of early 's best films. How can I describe these moments without giving away too much of what actually makes the film work?
The story turns on a thief who sometimes goes by Diana Melissa McCarthy , who wreaks havoc on a milquetoast, Sandy Patterson Jason Bateman , by stealing his credit cards and more. McCarthy shares top billing with Mr. Bateman, but she is the supernova who burns up this show, which was written by Craig Mazin and directed by Seth Gordon. Diana enters shortly before Sandy is hired for a job that bumps his income to six figures from five. An Everyman, Sandy comes with the usual pretty wife Amanda Peet and cute kids, with another on the way.
